How To Do Matte Navy Blue Nails at Home
Giving yourself the perfect matte blue nails at home is easily doable. It also creates a great self-care night in.
Some supplies you will need are clippers, cuticle nippers or mani scissors, file, buffer, base, and top coats, and of course, your matte navy blue nail polish.
You are going to start off by gently pushing the cuticles back and trimming any excess skin that is sticking up, being careful not to overcut the cuticle.
Next, you will want to cut and/or file the nails to the shape and length you are happy and comfortable with. Followed by a light buffing of the free edge and the base of the nail to get rid of any bumps, ridges, and sharp points.
After you have finished your at-home manicure, you can apply some acetone to the nail to clean it of any oils or products and begin polishing your base coat (or you can try other methods that don’t involve acetone).
Finally, in long strokes from cuticle to free edge, apply the matte navy blue nail lacquer(Zoya has amazing matte nail polishes). Apply up to two coats and let it dry. The matte nail lacquer will dry matte and does not require a top coat.
If you use a navy blue nail polish that is not matte, that is perfectly fine. Just finish the look off with a matte top coat.
